MSIT Master Course Schedule

The MS in IT program requires students to complete 30 hours of graduate coursework. The first 15 hours provide students with knowledge in core information technologies in leadership, strategic planning, and research. Students can then focus on one area of study to enhance their set of skills and knowledge. These areas of study are Cyber Security and Forensics, Software Development, Social Media, Homeland Security, Health Informatics, and Data Analytics. While concentrations are not required, students may declare and elect to complete courses for up to two concentrations (if they have eligible educational and/or experiential backgrounds). Students not seeking a concentration are considered “generalists”, and concentrations cannot be completed once a student has graduated from the program.

The courses in the program emphasize leadership abilities, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and interpersonal and communication skills. Career success through lifelong learning, professional development, and research is stressed at all levels of the curriculum. The program is designed to produce graduates prepared to take on leadership duties in the field of Information Technology in general as well as in specific work settings such as healthcare and information security.

Career success through research, lifelong learning, and professional development is emphasized at all levels of the curriculum. We anticipated that, after graduation, our graduates will:

1. Assume productive roles in IT-leadership positions, such as chief information security officer, digital forensics investigator, project and program manager, and other leadership roles within information technology in healthcare, government, education, business, and industry in the Middle Georgia region, throughout the state and nationally

2. Pursue life-long learning and engage in research in new and emerging and innovative technologies, enabling them to adapt and grow as organizational responsibilities change.

There are two Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) in the program. SLO 1 is assessed in the core program (common). SLO 2 is assessed in the Graduate Capstone class, which is common to all concentrations.

SLO 1: Produce an information technology annotated bibliography covering the subdomains of current & emerging issues, leadership, and project management.
SLO 2: Produce an original work of research based on your concentration.
